Homework Statement
we have a cylinder, mass m, radius R. a string is wrapped around the cylinder. and it is all located on the horizontal surface, and when we pull the string, the cylinder starts to roll.
if we pull the string with the constant force F, determine the force of friction...
the sum of all forces is also zero if the ladder isn't moving (friction + normal force+gravitional force(=weight))
so you have two basic conditions:
1)sum of all forces is zero
2)as you said , the sum of torques is also zero
you will calculate the torque(? moment of force) in the point where it...
